Blossom Tea.. Your gift, My pleasure

Blooming tea, also referred to as Blossom or Flower tea is a hand-crafted tea, in which edible flowers are tied in a ball of high quality tea leaves. When brewed the blooming tea ball will slowly open, giving the appearance of a blossoming flower.

Artistic flowering tea balls are handmade in China, using green and white tea and real jasmine, chrysanthemum, and other flower varieties. Creation of flower tea balls is a highly specialized ancient art. The finished product is a tight roll of dried tea and flowers, sometimes round, sometimes resembling a mushroom. Shell life of unbrewed tea ball is up to three years.

How to use it
Steep the ball for at least five and up to ten minutes if you’d prefer a stronger tea. After drinking the tea. you may rebrew the same tea ball again: once if you have used a teapot, and up to five times if you have brewed it in an individual cup. After that you may cover your bloom with cold water and display it for days.

Salt Crystal Deodorant - YES IT WORKS

Unlike the leading brands sold in drugstores, crystal deodorant is:

~Completely natural, made of mineral salts
~Free of alcohol, aluminum compounds, SLS, and other synthetic chemicals
~A solid, non-sticky and non-staining
~Fragrance free
~Not absorbed by the skin, preventing toxins from accumulating
~Allows the body to sweat out normal toxins, a healthy and necessary process
~Moreover, IT really WORKS! ...(and looks so much prettier that the plastic bottled stuff :p)

How Does Crystal Deodorant Work?
Body odor is caused not just by sweat, but from the by-products of bacteria that live on moist, sweaty areas of the skin. Most deodorants try to overpower body odor, while antiperspirants stop the body from sweating using alcohol or aluminum compound that shrink the pores of the skin.
Sweat is a natural, necessary way for the body to cool itself and release toxins. Salt crystals eliminate odor not by stopping sweat, but by preventing the bacteria that create bad smells from getting a foothold on your skin.

Salt rock crystal deodorants are safe, even for people with allergies and skin sensitivity, and they do not leave behind any noticeable residue on skin or clothing. Though there are several brands available, the only thing to really watch for is that you're choosing a pure salt crystal with no additives or fragrance.
